Sample: Feedback

This sample shows an easy way to put a feedback form into an iOS application to capture feedback and store it in Mobile Services. In this scenario, the user can enter comments, their email address, and a 1 – 5 star rating before submitting their feedback.

Sample: Connecting to Storage

This sample demonstrates how you can make use of Azure Table and Blob Storage from an iOS app using Mobile Services as a proxy layer. This means you can securely access tables and blobs through Mobile Services instead of needing to store the storage account key in your client side code. This sample also shows how to generate a Shared Access Signature in your Mobile Service and return that to the iOS app which can then use it to safely upload an image to Blob Storage.
